Tax Relief in Brentwood, California

Find the Right Lawyer Now

"Tax relief" in Brentwood, California can refer to a wide range of subjects. However, it almost always refers to lowering the tax liability, either of an individual, or a group of people.

When a politician or other government official uses the term "tax relief," they're mostly commonly talking about tax cuts, or some other actual or contemplated government action which would reduce the tax liability of some individuals or corporations.

However, many people associate the phrase "tax relief" with individuals, corporations, or law firms that offer services claiming to reduce or eliminate one's tax liability - getting them out of their obligation to pay the taxes. Most of the time, they'll say that they have proficient negotiators on their staff who can negotiate with the tax collectors in California or the IRS, to lower your tax bill. Some of these businesses are straightforward, and have the best interests of their customers in mind. However, many of them are scams.

Tax Relief Scams in Brentwood, California

It is pretty common for scammers in Brentwood, California to claim that, for a relatively small fee, they will help you get out of paying all of your taxes.

In the majority of cases, however, tax relief scammers in Brentwood, California have no actual ability to reduce your legal liability to pay your taxes. However, these scams also have several common factors which tend to be dead giveaways of their fraudulent nature, making them fairly easy to avoid if you are extremely vigilant.

Probably the strongest indication that a tax relief organization is a scam is a guarantee that they can deliver a particular result. If anyone makes an indisputable promise that they can excuse your tax debt, they are lying to you, plain and simple. This is because it is impossible to honestly make such a pledge. The fact is, most people are not qualified for any IRS programs that let some taxpayers reduce their tax liability. This goes for most people in Brentwood, California, as well.

And if a tax relief organization demands up-front payment, this should raise a big red flag for you. Many scammers in Brentwood, whether they're pledging tax relief, or anything else, will take your money, and then disappear, without even pretending to try to assist you. The worst of the worst will also take the money you agreed to pay them, and then make unapproved charges to your credit card, or withdrawals from your bank account.
